Manija is an afghan graphic designer based in Los Angeles. With a love of the handmade, an eye for detail and an extensive typographic background, Manija studied in Montreal before working with celebrated designers across the world: Vince Frost and Thomas Manss in London, Philippe Apeloig and Pascal Colrat in Paris, VSA Partners in New York, Prologue, The Mill in Los Angeles and now with her own company Me & the Bootmaker. The work spans all forms of design: logo, book and packaging design, signage and poster design, typography, title sequence and motion graphic design.
Motion design has seen her design for Oscar winning films alongside the Oscar ceremony itself. The designs stem from a meticulous eye for detail and a very steady hand producing hand made title sequences for TV, film and video games.
